After the trials and troubles of the past few years, the SAIGE 2022 Conference is more than just a conference, it is our hope that it can serve as a homecoming of sorts for counselors, students, and educators, both in the communities and allies of the communities. We desire to remember and honor those who have gotten us here and to reaffirm our commitment to each other, our clients, our students and supervisees, and the communities that we serve. We see you, we hear you, and we will continue to work until we all have a place, not just at the table, but in the leadership.

A new feature we have this year is the addition of a virtual component. For those of you who cannot make it to Chicago/Northbrook, you can purchase a virtual only ticket for access to several great pre-recorded sessions; this includes the corresponding CEUs (when you fill out the evaluation that is). For those of you who will be able to join us in Chicago/Northbrook, your conference ticket will also grant you access to these pre-recorded sessions and CEUs as well as a Continental Breakfast and Lunch on both days of the conference.

Our October 2021 Virtual Conference, Beyond the Basics, was a huge success! Thank you to all those involved for your support, advocacy, and for advancing topics for LGBTGEQIAP+ children, adolescents, and families!
